What a simple and delicious bread! I halved the recipe and baked in my mini-loaf pan to make 4 mini-loaves but I think I'll do a regular loaf next time-- so going to be my standby sandwich bread. I used my bread machine-- I let the yeast soak in the sugar water for 10 minutes, then added everything else, then let the bread machine do a dough cycle. Baked for 15 minutes in my convection oven, perfecto. Will definitely make over and over, so simple and tasty! EDIT: I made it again with honey and got 24 rolls out of the mix as listed. So good and I got so many compliments! Though my rolls were harder to shape as the dough was extremely sticky, mine were flatter but delicious no less.
